Having a clean home is a great feeling. Knowing that you have clean air in your homeis an even better feeling. Clean air ducts make your home safer and more comfortable for you and your family. Since we breathe in around 10,000 liters of air a day, the quality of the air in our homes goes hand-in-hand with our quality of life. We must do what we can to protect our indoor air, and air duct cleaning is an easy place to start.
Air duct cleaning refers to the general maintenance and washing of various heating and cooling system components, like the supply and return air ducts of your system. Over time, HVAC components get contaminated with pollen, dust particles, mold (if moisture is present), and other debris. These can bring on allergy symptoms and affect your health in other negative ways, so make air-duct cleaning a priority and control what you and your family are breathing into your lungs.
Benefits of Air Duct Cleaning
Keeping your air ducts clean is beneficial in many ways, a key benefit being healthier indoor air quality. Dirty air can bog down your home, but a clean air-duct system keeps your home healthy and smelling fresh. Clean air ducts also provide increased energy efficiency. Contaminants in the air ducts can cause your heating and cooling system to work harder to run at its normal pace, shortening its lifespan. Clean HVAC systems are more energy efficient so they save you money on your energy bill. Higher indoor air quality keeps your HVAC system safe from corrosion and protects your HVAC investment.
Why You Should Get Your Ducts Cleaned
Ensuring your air ducts are clean is one of the simplest ways to keep a clean house and healthy body. Dust and other contaminants are circulated thorugh your air ducts five to seven times a day, which quickly builds up and can contribute to many different health problems. The most common problems include eye and nose irritation, coughing, asthma, and especially allergic reactions. As soon as you have your air ducts cleaned you can breathe easy. It’s important to note that when air ducts are being cleaned, all components of the system should be completely inspected and cleaned, including cooling coils, fans, heat exchangers, registers, grilles, diffusers, and air ducts.
When having your air ducts cleaned, it’s a good idea to have them sealed too. Duct sealing closes any air leaks that may have occurred over years of work and can save homeowners potentially hundreds of dollars and so much energy. It’s a great way to end home pollutant circulation once and for all. Ask a BW/Cook Service Experts professional to check for leaks when they clean your air ducts and let you know if duct sealing is right for you and your home. Be comfortable and happy with clean and sealed air ducts.
